  1. Brand New C.F. Holcomb Kodiak, "The Tree" Mahogany
    $9,265 $8,995

    Our first resonator from C.F. Holcomb takes center stage (and our hearts) from the very first lick to the final ringing chord. There’s so much going on with this cut-above-the-reso, where to begin? How about Christopher’s novel use of “The Tree” Mahogany for a resonator body? We’ve seen Koa sets not a quarter as gorgeous, and somewhere Holcomb uncovered a slice of Cocobolo big enough for a one-piece neck—a standing ovation for his taste in woods.


    Add to that a spider cone bridge with bone saddles, Lollar P90 (oh, yes indeed), Gotoh tuners, and a gorgeous headstock plate bearing Holcomb’s John Hancock. But let’s talk tone. This Holcomb Kodiak boasts a voice that is, truly, greater than the sum of its parts (and what fine parts they are): rich and colorful reso tone with the spider bridge, a fiery brand of warmth to light up the bass, and whip-crack trebles that soar when you give the Lollar some juice. National, eat your heart out. Please note, this Holcomb comes with a weeks’ supply of paper towels to catch any accidental tears of joy (also works for excess saliva).

  2. 2017 Nichols Corralitos, Flame Maple
    $6,844 $6,645

    We’re more than happy to announce our latest partnership with Glenn Nichols, restoration maestro and electric guitar experimenteur! The curves of his Corralitos model are velvet smooth in hand-rubbed varnish and a dark burst, with McNelly Bliss humbuckers and wedge-adjustable bridge—and we haven’t started in on the tone yet, or the playability. Electric guitars don’t often come with such flawless fit-n-finish and appointments, but Nichols spared not one iota of attention in designing and executing this marvelously light electric to cover a wide range of musical territories.


    Handmade McNelly Bliss humbuckers based on old PAFs, 1950s style wiring to maximize vintage flair, and Emerson pots for good measure. The body is finished with an oil varnish recipe originally designed for the Spruce masts of ships to maximize flexibility and durability; the neck is spirit varnished, feels warm and smooth to the touch. These choices came from Glenn’s myriad years honing his finish craft at Santa Cruz, Kenny Hill, and more recently with Bill Tippin. Spanish Cedar neck, blocking, and kerfing relieves the guitar of extra bulk (this electric weights in at a scant 5lbs 8oz), and the lively acoustic response of Nichols’ laminated Maple body translates delectably into the pickup tone. This Corralitos is your guide and constant companion for everything across the electric horizon.

    Artinger Venetian Hollow Guitar
    SOLD

    Out of stock

    We've got another gorgeous offering from the workshop of Matt Artinger--a 2015 Venetian Hollow in European Spruce and Mahogany! Between those choice woods and an all-East-Indian-Rosewood neck, this electric guitar is dressed to the nines with an Electric City Artinger humbucker pickup and gold Waverly tuners.

    A smoking Jazz machine with the single pickup, this semi-hollow is much lighter than a typical Jazz box, and is easy on the left hand with an oil-finished neck profile and slinky low action. The voice has a gorgeously clear bottom end, with a middle register that has an articulate punch that's excellent for fingerstyle arrangements and present, crisp trebles. And when we cranked the amp to 11, all that clarity and drive was still there, ready for some Jazzy action!

    The Hollow Standard is one of a series of guitars that luthier Matt Artinger is building for Dream Guitars. Incorporating sophisticated design and refined appointments, this beauty is a great fit for playing any genre of music. The combination of the carved mahogany top and back, plus the Cat's Eye soundholes, and ebony tailpiece make tremendous visual impact.

The Electric City RD59 pickups yield tones that sound great clean or distorted. It also comes in a luxurious faux alligator Cedar Creek case.

    Beauregard MB Semi-Hollow Archtop Guitar
    SOLD

    Out of stock

    At Dream Guitars, we often have players visit of such calibre that we're struck dumb when they take a guitar down to play. Not nearly as often are we reduced to silence simply at the sight of a guitar--but this 2008 Beauregard MB is just such an instrument. Whoa! Beauregard has outfitted this beauty with two powerhouse P90 pickups which can scream for Blues while at the same time remaining fat and warm for Jazz. Versatile, in a word. This is as dynamic as they come, with a glossy finish that is feather-smooth to the touch. With arcing curves like a drop of water sliding along the face of a wineglass, this Beauregard MB in Maple and Spruce might be the most beautiful Semi-Hollow or Archtop guitar we've seen. Its previous owner has been incredibly careful, too: this is a gem with no discernible marks to mar the surface of the Spruce or the Ebony bridge and tailpiece.

    Beauregard MB Archtop Guitar
    SOLD

    Out of stock

    Let the good times roll! With an MB like this one from Mr. Beauregard in your hands, the world becomes a much more exciting place.

    The contours are delectably smooth, and feel perfectly natural while playing--this is a guitar which fits securely in your arms, with an excellent balance that keeps it easily and comfortably in optimal playing position, thanks to its lightweight construction. The trebles are particularly quick and responsive with the single Humbucker pickup, and man! to hear this baby with an Overdrive pedal.

    Benedetto Guitars Slim Body 17 Archtop Guitar, FIRST EVER!
    SOLD

    Out of stock

    Here is a rare and collectible Benedetto Archtop Guitar. This is Bob's first ever slim body guitar and the only one of this model ever made. In fact see the pic below of the Benedetto Log Book from 1978 showing this guitar's entry. The body is Maple and German Silver Spruce and just 2 1/4" deep at the edges and 3" in the center making it easy to hold while still producing a full acoustic tone. The shallower depth also gives it some extra midrange punch. A gorgeous Walnut Burst adorns the guitar as do matching Florette inlays on the headstock and tailpiece. Even the bridge base is inlaid with scalloped blocks that match the custom fretboard markers. A custom bound pickguard houses volume and tone controls for the single pickup. It's a joy to have a vintage Benedetto Archtop, especially a true one of a kind and the first of it's kind ever made.

    Gibson Guitars Super 300 Archtop Guitar
    SOLD

    Just over 200 Super 300s were ever made by Gibson Guitars. The Super 300 is essentially identical to a super 400 but a bit more understated with regard to trim. This beauty from 1950 is in excellent condition and the tone is magical. You can just imagine some of the juke joints it's been in. The tobacco burst is warm and inviting and the maple back has nice figure as does the tiger striped neck. The neck finish is worn to that perfect feel of a vintage guitar with just enough miles on it. Outstanding...
